Fox News just called Ohio for Barack Obama. Obama is on pace to win every Kerry state plus (at least) New Mexico and Ohio. Barring shocking results in Kerry states west of the Mississippi, Barack Obama will be the next president of the United States.

By the way, Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight.com predicts that it is literally impossible for John McCain to win the election without Ohio.

Update: The other nets have called Ohio, too.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
